Northern Tier Sports Report
It’s a week before the NTL Championships, and two weeks before districts, so local athletes should be closing in on their peaks for the track and field season, especially as the weather warms, which it’s expected to do from this week on out.

In Class AA the top two district finishers automatically qualify for states, or if an athlete hits a state mark, and finishes in the top eight. Athens competes in Class AAA, which means just the champion goes, unless they hit a state mark.



There are three girls in the NTL that currently sit in the top 10 in the districts, according to their PennTrackXC rankings: Troy’s Anneliese Getola (4th), Towanda’s Anna Dunn (7th), and Wyalusing’s Olivia Haley (8th). So far this year six girls have gone sub-13.
